In addition, the painting has been going slowly because I am not using my "basecoat-and-dip" technique but instead and doing the more traditional "basecoat-ink shade-highlight" technique. This turns out to be much, much more slow a process. I also chose a somewhat complicated "quartered" pattern where I have to end up freehanding color borders on every figure.
Finally, I'm just not feeling it. The ugly truth about the gaming club I just joined is that hardly anyone bothers painting their figures at all. That's their choice and I respect their freedom to do whatever they want, but it is a little hard to get fired up to spend weeks painting figures as a result. This is compounded by the fact that I'm basically painting the army to play a game that isn't one of my favorites. I'm learning to appreciate it, and hopefully that and the fact that I like fielding a painted army will keep me on track.
In the meantime, I am letting myself get sidetracked by some sci-fi terrain projects. More later.
